-- when the individual mandate is justified and the commerce -- commerce power, whether it is justified and the necessary and proper power of the constitution, and whether or not it can be justified under the taxing power. in thinking about the burdens on the challengers, i think it is worth focusing on the fact that these are three issues and the government only needed to prevail on one of these issues. these are three separate arguments for why the federal government had the power to pass this statute. so, i think back to the statement that there was only a 1% chance of prevailing. part of the challenge for those attacking the statute was they did have to run the table on these arguments, and to make matters more difficult, i think it was conventional wisdom and a part of conventional wisdom that did not turn out to be wrong, but there were four votes on the court ready to uphold the law and any one of these grounds. when that meant in practical terms is that in order to prevail, the challengers need to run the table, and i'm these three issues get 15 out of 15 available votes the goo

congress whacks the power under the commerce power or necessary and proper power to impose a mandate to purchase insurance. of course it says the statute was valid under the taxing power but only did that by read characterizing the statute as not a mandate to purchase insurance but as a tax on the status of not having insurance so construed they upheld it as a valid exercise of taxing power. it is worth recognizing that that is a different statute from the statute congress passed and it has different practical effects. most law-abiding citizens if told there is a constitutionally valid mandate to purchase insurance will purchase insurance. i think most people if told that they have to pay a tax if they don't purchase insurance will want to know how much is the tax and how much does the insurance cost and they will make a rational decision whether to purchase health insurance and some people will purchase insurance and some people will choose to pay the tax. the practical consequence i believe is that the number of individuals who will remain uninsured will be higher under a regime th

on the commerce clause. everyone of the justices at some level will see the commerce power is fairly broad. i also think all nine justices recognize there have to be limits on the commerce power, otherwise the whole point of enumerating the various powers of congress was entirely beside the point. they could instead the commerce power, were down. now i think some of the justices may question what role there is for the judiciary to enforce the commerce power letters. what happened in this case is that five justices did adopt what is bad at least the dominant view since the lopez decision, which is the core can simply knock it out of enforcing limits on federalism on the power of the federal government to adhere to iowa quote justice kennedy from his lopez concurrence. as he said then, the federal balance is too essential a part of archons additional structure in place to vital ebola in securing freedom for us to admit an inability to intervene when one or the other level of government has tipped the scales too far. i think he also recognize this is not an area where there are strong occasional ince

dealt with the commerce clause issue yes, five of them including john roberts said it exceeds the bet exceeds the power because it is so unusual. in other words they didn't cast down a month to meet the among the president's. they gave congress the power under the understanding of the commerce clause so there is a sense in which it me be one of to the of the calls could be more important but we just don't know. we will have to see. so, my time is up and i am really sorry that i had to do my signing before because i had to catch a plane so i won't see you at the signing table but thank you very much for coming.

're in the business of putting local commerce online, doing the same thing for -- that amazon did for products we're doing for local commerce. and we're still in the early innings of that opportunity. local commerce is a $3 trillion market. most local transactions do not involve groupon today. so even if we can get a very small piece of the overall local commerce market, we think we can build a great business over time. we're really focused on what we can do over the long term there. >> you say you're misunderstood by wall street. but specifically here you are launching a new business. is this going to convince wall street that the company's on track? i mean 70% down over a year. >> i think that this product improves the value proposition that we have former chants. we can use payments to help merchants save thousands of dollars a year over what they're paying today. that makes merchants more likely to want to have a lasting, sustained relationship with groupon, and run more deals with groupon. >> i understand tyler back in the studio wants to jump in here. >> mr. mason, given the slide in the va
of the legislation. the bill passed out of our subcommittee and the full energy and commerce committee on voice votes with strong, strong bipartisan support. i believe, mr. speaker, it has a high likelihood of being accepted to the senate and to the president. we will certainly give them that opportunity. i urge my colleagues to support this bill so we can finally see this significant improvement signed into law. i want to thank mr. murphy and all of the others who worked to expedite this legislation and get it to the floor today, and i'm going to ask my colleagues to join with us in passing this bill. with that said, mr. speaker, i will reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentleman from pennsylvania. mr. murphy: mr. speaker, i have no more speakers on this bill, and i'm prepared to close if the gentleman from north carolina is prepared to close as well. mr. butterfield: i have no more speakers and i am too prepared to close. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from pennsylvania reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from north carolina is

about abortion and also the chamber of commerce and the degree they care about -- >> i just want to see one democratic president say i am the president who is devoted to the courts. i want to see -- i'm going to make that priority. >> we don't see that because of interest groups. >> you didn't see it in clinton or obama. >> they have identified this asymmetric polarization. the republican party moved further to the right. they threaten filibuster reform, the nuclear option when they have a majority and democrats haven't yet. >> excellent point. one counter example -- >> nominations, younger than the democrats. there's asemitrihere. >> a lot of people thought affordable care act was going to be this. i have a cold, and i took nyquil, but i'm still stubbed up.

chamber of commerce and the american civil liberties union. it gives you a sense we have not settled on big ideas yet. >> peter: let me ask you about the possibility the president can step in here through executive action. if you were advising the president today would you recommend the wise house step in and if so, what should they do and what can they do? >> that is a close call. we do need some momentum. there are those of us that are watching the activity on the hill are suggesting there is some common ground. we need to generate momentum for the future. the executive order does that, and frankly, that's probably a good thing. but it is a limited thing. it comes with a tariff. acids before, the problem right now is we lack political concensus. an executive order is an admission we lack political consensus but we are going to move forward anyway. even if these are correct steps we are moving forward in a sensitive area without the two political branches of government being in agreement. as director of nsa and cia, i operated on the outer reaches of executive prerogative doing thin
consumers. if it has an affect on the united states commerce, commerce of the united states, and if this affect is adverse, then following the statute that congress wrote for us, we're supposed to challenge the deal. >> tom: we have european regulators stop u.s. companies from merging a decade ago, ge and honeywell were stopped because of the eu, this year the nyse had to break apart their planned merger. is there a competition among international regulators. >> i think among international regulators or anti-trust enforcement agencies there is much more comedy than competition. so much commerce is global now and the lawsithin the european union and the united states have converged considerably over its last few decades. that for the most part, we usually come to the same conclusions on the same mergers. now there might be some differences when the market shares are different. and the economic effects are different in different geographic markets like the eu and the united states. >> one investigation that has been admitted to gooseel continues to be under review by your agen
of commerce along with heads of other departments and agencies to produce a report on enhancing the competitiveness of the united states and attracting foreign direct investment and for other purposes. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to the rule, the the gentlewoman from california, mrs. bono mack, and the gentleman from georgia, mr. barrow, each will control 20 minutes. mrs. bono: -- mrs. bono mack: i ask unanimous consent that all members have five legislative days to revise and extend their remarks and include extraneous material on the bill. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. mrs. bono mack: i rise today in strong support of h.r. 5910, the global investment in american jobs act of 2012. this legislation directs the department of commerce, in coordination with the heads of other relative federal departments, to produce an interagency report on enhancing the competitiveness of the united states in enhancing foreign direct investments. this is a common sense, bipartisan approach to creating new jobs in america. i'd like to thank my colleagues, mr. told, mr. peters, m
want them to get their pay. when the u.s. chamber of commerce agreed -- i will not give an early christmas to go in to businesses and make sure they all regulate our businesses and kill jobs. i agree with the globe. >> this was equal pay for equal work and senator brown voted against it. let's be clear about the language of the blunt amendment. it does not talk about a religious exemption. it talks about any moral objection. it talks about insurance companies. i do not think that is what senator can be fought for. it is inappropriate for senator brown to characterize senator kennedy's work in that way. senator kennedy fought for women to have a full range of health- care services. >> we are both pro-choice. we both support roe v. wade. she is wrong. i will make sure the catholics are not pitted against their faith. on the women's rise in terms of their pay, we have laws on the books,lillie ledbetter is already in effect. anyone who feels they are discriminated against can bring positive action. the boston chamber of commerce -- chamber of commerce -- i agree with them. i will not
the comments came to light on tuesday, mitt romney spoke to the hispanic chamber of commerce and los angeles in a bid to woo latino voters. the obama administration has filed a challenge at the world trade organization accusing china of unfairly subsidizing its auto and auto parts industries. announcing the move during a campaign stop in ohio, president obama took a shot at republican rival mitt romney. >> he made money investing in companies that up routed from here and went to china. pioneers. you cannot stand up to china when all you have done is send them our jobs. today my administration is launching a new action against china. this one against illegal subsidies that encourage companies to ship autoparts, manufacturing jobs, overseas. these direct the hard-working men and women on the assembly lines in ohio and michigan and across the midwest. >> at least 12 people have been killed, including nine foreigners, in a suicide bombing in afghanistan. a militant group has claimed responsibility for the attack, calling it revenge for the anti islam film that sparked anger in muslim countries w
. did chief justice roberts do harm to our understanding of the commerce clause and take us back to an earlier era where he said no commerce clause -- >> i disagreed with that part of his ruling. i think that obama care law was easily a constitutional as an exercise of the power to regulate interstate commerce and as a tax and as a national defense measure, believe it or not. even for human rights. but here's one thing i will say on behalf of chief justice roberts. he didn't buy the argument all the way down the line. he upheld it. he joined liberals. it was not a total partisan 5-4 decision the way bush vs. gore was. i think he passed a test of principle. >> eliot: he's becoming a much fascinating, granularly interesting justice to watch. for many reasons he couldn't wipe the statute out. >> four justices were willing to do that on one sentence they didn't like. >> eliot: very quick. deal with justices breyer and kagan saying come over with me to the medicaid limitation? >> i do think on the other issue, it

by the energy and commerce committee here in the house. but support for this agenda also requires us to pull the plug on existing programs that simply aren't working. and the department of energy's title 17 loan guarantee program is simply not advancing the ball on an all-of-the-above energy goal. the no more solyndras act, this bill phases out this costly, ineffective and frankly very mismanaged program. the investigation of solyndra uncovered a story worse than anyone could have imagined. it is amazing to me that the administration gave a half billion dollar loan guarantee to a company that its own experts predicted would fail. a company so dysfunctional that it burned through this giant handout and went bankrupt in two years. even worse, when it became clear to the administration that solyndra was in trouble, it chose to double down on the risky bet, gambling even more taxpayer dollars with a desperate loan restructuring instead of trying to cut its losses and move on. solyndra is the most visible but far from the only example of title 17 failures. in fact, it is hard to point to a single
under the commerce power, whether it is justified under the necessary and proper power of the constitution, and whether or not it can be justified under the taxing power. it's worth focusing on the fact these are three issues and they needed to prevail on one. these are three separate issues where y they had the tower pass the statute. and so -- if you think back to the statement there was only a 1% chance of prevailing, part of the challenge for those attacking the statute was they really did have to run the table on the arguments. and to make matters even more difficult, i think it was conventional wisdom and a part of conventional wisdom that didn't turn out to be wrong, there were four votes on the court ready to uphold the law on any one of these grounds. and so what that meant in practical terms is that in order to prevail, the challengers really needed to run the table and on the three issues get 15 out of 15 available votes. now the god news is that the challengers managed quite remarkable feet of getting 14 out of 15 votes.
